Simplicity Itself

Posted on April 3, 2011



My mother wanted a plain mohair scarf, I showed her endless patterns and nothing was what she wanted, either too fussy, too thin, too long, too short and so on.

In the end I’d started and stopped so many patterns I’d lost some wool to tangles and knots. I gave up and cast on this having no idea where it would end up.

Needles: 5.5mm
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze

Cast on 30 & knit every row.
Continue until the yarn is nearly at an end and cast off leaving enough to seam.
Seam cast on edge to bind off edge. Keep the sewing loose to leave the seam less visible.

There you have it, simple, elegant & warm.
Long enough to wrap around twice for an extra snug fit too. Ticks all my mothers boxes. 🙂
